Newmarket born Pope is now 22-years-old and enjoyed two loan stints at York last season. The Minstermen rapidly climbed the table in the second half of the season and qualified for the end of season play-offs. York lost narrowly to Fleetwood – who went on to beat Burton at Wembley – at the semi-final stage.

Including the two play-off games, Pope made 24 appearances for York.

He has also made 5 appearances for Aldershot and a further 9 for Cambridge in loan spells since he has been at The Valley.

Pope made his Charlton debut in the last game of the 2012/13 season, when he came on as a substitute for the injured David Button against Bristol City.

Pope joined the Addicks from Eastern Counties side, Bury Town, in the summer of 2011. He is highly rated at The Valley and will be in contention to be first choice keeper next season.
